Caint is Comhrá - links

The Caint is Comhrá group is very creative on their Irish language classes, for example this past Monday night’s intermediate class they used this article. It is entitled "10 ways to make your life healthier," and it has some great Irish phrases and some interesting vocabulary.

If you are interested in reading more in Irish, more articles are available on the Gaelscéal , a national irish language newspaper, website:, and we encourage you to read them!  If you want to hear some spoken Irish, the Gaelscéal also produces podcasts.

Here we also have Irish phrases, and an Irish proverb:

Irish phrase of the week: (meán-rang)

Athbhliain faoi mhaise duit/ daoibh!  || Happy New Year to you/ to ye!

Irish phrase of the week (ardrang)

Tháinig an fhadhb seo aniar aduaidh orm || This problem came as an unpleasant surprise!

Irish proverb of the week:

Mol an Óige agus Tiocfaidh Sí  || Praise the youth and it will bloom.
